Kelly-Moore Paints is a leading premium paint manufacturer and retailer located in the western U.S. The employee-owned company produces approximately 20 million gallons of paint per year and owns and operates more than 145 stores in California, Washington, Oregon, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Nevada. Kelly-Moore sells approximately 400 types of paints, finishes and sundries to professional contractors and painters and to the do-it-yourself market.
Kelly-Moore continues its retail expansion with the opening of a new store in Windsor, California.
“We’re delighted and are looking forward to offering our products and services in Windsor,” said new store manager Greg Fitch. “This is our seventh store in Sonoma County and our 21st in the Bay Area. We’re centrally located which makes us easily accessible to our loyal customers who now have a neighborhood paint store and won’t have to travel across town for their painting needs.”
Kelly-Moore Paints announced the results of its Color of the Year 2019 designer survey, sent to a nationwide group of 15,000 ASID-certified interior designers and members of the American Society of Interior Designers. As members of forecasting organizations Color Marketing Group and Color Association of the United States, the company selected the most influential colors that reflect home décor trends for 2019, and then presented those colors to this esteemed group of designers.
Peacock Blue KMA29 was chosen as the 2019 Color of the Year. This classic blue with green undertones is a hands down winner in the survey, capturing 35 percent of the votes. No surprise as saturated blues remain a mainstay in home fashion for 2019, the company reported. It is becoming a favorite color for modern kitchen cabinetry, replacing white as the go-to on-trend color. Peacock Blue and saturated blues are a must for textiles and home goods, but also can be an interesting option for walls, adding depth and a dramatic touch.
